Adding Your Business Location to Your Facebook Page

  • Page Type: Ensure that your company's Facebook page is categorized as a business or brand page. You can only have one address associated with your page.

  • Access "Edit Your About Info": To add your address, go to your Facebook Page. Below the cover photo, click on "Edit." In the top right-hand corner, you'll see "Edit Your About Info." Click on it

  • Navigate to "Edit Your About Info": Once you're in the "Edit Your About Info" section, locate and click on "Add your location."

  • Add or Edit Your Address: In the "Location" section, you can add or edit your business address. Make sure it's accurate.

  • Confirm Changes: Click "Save" or any equivalent option to confirm the addition or modification of your business address.

  • Facebook Places: You may have heard of Facebook Places in the past, which required a separate listing for businesses. With your address on your business page, this is no longer necessary. However, you might find other variations of your business on Facebook Places.

    Claim Additional Pages: To claim these pages, follow these steps:

    • Go to Facebook and use the search bar to find your business, even from your desktop (no GPS device needed).

    • If you locate a Facebook page for your business that you don't own, go to that page and click "Is this your business?" below the cover photo.

    • Follow the on-screen instructions to claim the page.

    • Merge Pages: If you own an existing Facebook business page and want to merge it with a claimed Facebook Place, follow the instructions provided by Facebook for merging pages.
